Bangladesh army tortures an indigenous Chakma Buddhist in Naniachar

On 15 August 1989, Bangladesh army personnel from the Zonal Head Quarter in Naniachar beat and tortured an indigenous Buddhist person in Naniachar, Rangamati district. The indigenous victim is a public servant at the Health Complex in Naniachar. The victim is:

  1. Mr. Santosh Chakma, 32 yrs, son of Mr. Anil Chandra Chakma of Baradam, Naniachar.

India was partitioned on the basis of religion in 1947. 98.5% of the CHT population was non-Muslim during the partition. The indigenous people of CHT opted to join either India or Burma. But Muslim League conspired with the Boundary Commission and illegally annexed CHT with East Pakistan in violation of the principle of partition. Successive Bangladesh governments have been sponsoring Muslim settlers from plain land to dilute the indigenous people of CHT.

Bangladesh army's role in CHT is to protect the Muslim settlers and carry out massacre, extra-judicial killing, torture, detention withou trial, land grab, rape, religious persecution and ethnic cleansing against indigenous Buddhist, Hindu and Animist people in CHT.
